Astronaut in Love Rival Kidnap Plot

Tuesday, February 6th, 2007 at 15:43 by Eliza E. Lanyard

US Navy Capt Lisa Nowak, who flew to the international space station last July, has been arrested and charged with attempted kidnapping, attempted vehicle burglary with battery and just plain battery.

She fell in love with fellow astronaut Navy Commander William Ofelein who flew the Space Shuttle last December but alas - as happens in so many love space triangles his heart was betrothed to another.

Its alleged she donned a wig, trench coat, and adult nappies so she could drive without stopping on the 900 mile trip from Houston to Orlando and confront her love rival Colleen Shipman. It seems she was armed with pepper spray, a 4 inch folding knife, a steel mallet and some rubber tubing.

I’m not well up on military matters but maybe this ladies woes stem from an identity crisis. She was a navy captain and he was a navy commander, I thought the navy were involved with ships of the seafaring kind not spaceships. So it’s understandable if her head got turned and she got all confused. If she is convicted she faces life imprisonment so her training on how to cope in confined spaces will probably come in handy.
